April 25, 2014
We made it through Semana Santa in one piece! There were record crowds and Bandoromo was declared a success! The aquarium even broke attendance records as well!  We are now in the middle of Semana Moto! Motorcycles have been arriving by land and sea all week!

We were visited by the the president of Mexico on Wednesday! He was here to open the water plant and to christen a new research ship. 

In tourism news, Delta has created a LA-Mazatlan direct flight, 6 days a week! Yippee! SECTUR has announced that there are 6 new hotels in the works to help support the increased crowds since the Durango highway opened. Also, Princess Cruise Lines has created a special itinerary departing on December 3, 2015 - exactly 50 years to the day that the line's original ship, Princess Patricia, set sail on the very first Mexico cruise in 1965. Mazatlan will be included in the stops, of course! 

Until next week!

Travel Tip of the Month



''You can change money at banks or at any of the dozens of "Casas de Cambio" (or simply "Cambios" - "Change Houses") located throughout Mazatlan. Banks will give you the best exchange rate, but lines tend to be LONG...it's not unusual to wait � hour or more in line. Banks will allow you to cash traveller's checks, but usually only if you present your passport.
The difference in exchange rates paid by the cambios versus the banks really is minimal, unless you are changing thousands of dollars.

Que Pasa?

Semana Moto is upon us! No worries, there is more to do coming up in the next couple weeks! The opera finals at Teatro Angela Peralta, the last First Friday Art Walk, a LOT of great movies at El Recreo, and among our already busy live music schedule, Julion Alvarez is returning to sing in Mazatlan! Go to Mazatlan Life and fill out your calendar so you don't miss anything
